Smashing Pots: Behind the Scenes

DaveyDecember 21st, 2012 by Davey

A few days ago we showed you freddiew and Lindsey Stirling’s “Smashing Pots” from YouTube, and like almost all freddiew videos, we get to take a short look behind the scenes.

It’s mostly just a few minutes of goofing around, but it’s still nice to see what’s happening outside the view of the camera.

Hit the jump to see the video!

The one thing I’m surprised about is that Freddie claims that none of us would recognize that this video was based on the Guardhouse of Castle Town in Ocarina of Time, but I think Brandon had it right, most of us were immediately brought back to that room in the Nintendo 64 title- smashing pots and collecting rupees.

The only thing I’m left wondering about is why Lindsey Stirling likes to wear the blue tunic, but I suppose it will remain a mystery for another day.

Hopefully after the positive response to this video, we’ll see Freddie, Brandon, and their team make more Zelda related videos. I would certainly look forward to seeing another exploration of a niche subject within the Zelda world.

    First time I saw it I knew it was the guardhouse

    • baileygirl99

      Where else would it really be? The only place with that many pots is the guardhouse ;-)

    Hi Lindsey

  • Blakenator

    Sorry, but I immediately recognized it. I would go in that room anyway even if my wallet was full and break all those pots.

    • Midna’s Sister

      Cuz those butthead guards totally deserve it?

      • Blakenator

        He’s not a very good guard if all he does is stand in a room and not even guard the stuff in it. I mean, what is his job, anyway?

        • Midna’s Sister

          Exactly LOLZ. To stand there and make sure nobody breaks the pots, as he states if you talk to him as a child… But dreamer boy don’t seem to care when you break the pots, steal the rupees inside and run off.

    I don’t give a crap, I just want to know if the rumor of majora’s mask 3D is a hoax or not

    • baileygirl99

      It’s a hoax

  • RobTurlac

    I love you Lindsey, and want to have your children.

    • firecrb

      She’s mormon but I want to to

      • baileygirl99

        I don’t think she’s Mormon, because she played a song that was Christian-related…

        • drnedaj

          Mormons are Christians so that’s a bad argument

          • Error

            Mormon’s call themselves Christians, but other Christians don’t call them Christians.

          • Linkfan99

            It’s technically a form of Christianity. I am a non-mormon Christian and I still think of them as Christians, just a… sub-category.

          • bluchu

            mormons follow the book of mormon, and don’t believe Jesus is their Savior, so I would agree with error’s statements

          • Linkfan99

            WRONG. Mormons do believe Jesus is the Son of God. They follow the Book of Mormon AS WELL AS the Bible. Don’t test my religious knowledge.
            Do your research before stating an invalid argument.

            I said “Savior” not son of God.

            DUDE. Are you stupid? Look:

            http://mormon.org/faq/mormon-christian

            In the middle:
            “We, of course, accept Jesus Christ as our Leader, our King, our Savior…the dominant figure in the history of the world, the only perfect Man who ever walked the earth, the living Son of the living God. He is our Savior and our Redeemer through whose atoning sacrifice has come the opportunity of eternal life.”

            Why don’t you ask your own preacher at your church then. Also, the web site bluchu posted down below is accurate.

          • bluchu

            I took a class on religions in college. Mormons believe Jesus is the Son of God, but do not believe He came to save them. Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God who came down to die on the cross to save them. Here you go Linkfan

            Hmmmm….. Which would you believe more… MORMON.ORG, their official website, or some “carm,org”…

            They also believe the devil is the son of god

        • Linkfan99

          I’m sorry, but that was a totally ignorant statement. Mormons ARE Christians. If I were mean, I would call you an idiot. But I am not feeling mean today. So I won’t.

          XD Just kidding.

          • gamer

            No they’re not, they’re a cult. They think God the Father was a man once that was obedient to the law and became a god. Then came to earth where he had spirit children, two being the devil and Jesus. They basically believe you can become a god by doing good and following the law. I was raised mormon, my parents marriage was split up by the church after my mother admitted to not really believing. I left Utah with her and we moved to Florida. My father stayed in Utah, and I haven’t seen or heard from him since the day we left. Despite trying to contact him through the mail and phone. Trust me 100% cult. Most mormons are good people, and I have nothing against the people, just the mormon church. But they are not Christians.

          • Linkfan99

            IDIOT. CHECK YOUR SOURCES before making up random crap. MORMON DOT FRICKEN ORG.

          • gamer

            Not making things up. Mormons call themselves Christians, but I assure you they are not. Major Christian churches weather it be Baptist, Lutheran, Methodest, Catholic do not consider them Christians. I was Mormon for the first fifteen years of my life, I’m thirty two now, your thirteen. I’m pretty sure at thirteen you don’t have a massive amount of knowledge on other religions. Why don’t you try and look at a source other than the Mormon church themselves. That’s what you keep posting sources from. Of course a criminal wouldn’t refer to himself as a criminal.

      • linkypete

        I’m mormon,too!!!!

    • Error

      Wouldn’t it be the other way around. She would have your children. Assuming your a guy.

      • firecrb

        Well i’m a guy

    • IMFWeirdo

      I can see why people are attracted to her. She’s so energetic and cheerful and cute. Just seeing her dressed up as Link brightens up my day. She didn’t get to say much in the video but that just made it all the cuter.

  • baileygirl99

    Lindsey’s car is adorably small! How to weld a sword. I burst out laughing on that part.

  • The Hylian Monolith

    Cool. I saw this earlier, liked it a lot.
    It’s cool to know that their efforts included goofing like nobody’s business. I mean, that’s how it’s DONE.
